Purpose: To demonstrate a method to estimate organ doses from CT examination of from multiple CT machine models. Method and Materials: A validated computational model of particular CT machine has been constructed and used to calculate organ doses from CT examinations. The dose distribution in space is derived by fitting a parabolic function to the CTDI‐center and CTDI‐peripheral values of each machine, which provides a dose ratio as a function of distance from isocenter. The distribution of… CONTINUE READING
